On February 1, Houston will host the second leg of the new IRB Women’s World Series sevens rugby event, which mirrors the IRB Men’s tournament at four locations around the globe. Amanda Love previews the action in Texas.
The World Series provides nations with quality opposition at the highest level and further exposure for teams in developing countries. There are six core series teams and six invitational sides, who compete in three round robin pools at each event. With all roads leading to Rio at the Summer Olympics in 2016, it is an exciting time to be a part of Women’s Sevens rugby.
